    Small conservative farm town full of small conservative farm boys doesn't leave much room for crime, fortunately.
    Review Brighton Township
    Wellington consists of pizza, bars and hair salons.
    The plus to Wellington being so small that it's considered a village is that there usually isn't much traffic!
